On a general note...will there be anyone stationed at the turn-around, so that runners names (qualifiers) can get ticked off?

At the Pluviometer T Junction, the left turn is signposted Cronje Mountain...
Years ago I ran the Baldy Peaks 50km in California which had an unmanned turnaround on the top of Thunder Mountain. We were told at the pre-race briefing that "You will see something at the peak. You must be able to tell it what it is when you finish."
Maybe that's all that it needed at the Cronje Mountain sign. Have one of the fast runners (who would have already qualfied for 6 Foot) tie a couple of ribbons to the sign. Say a yellow and a pink one. Those intending to use the run as a qualifier must be able to name the ribbon colours when they have their time taken at the finish at Megalong. Someone running near the back of the field can clean up the ribbons, so there is no need for anyone to drive around to Black Range.
Sure, it is not a perfect system, but it may be enough for a one off.
